Ants Marching

One of my best friends from high school came to see me this past week. She came with her family to go skiing in Park City and even though I only got to spend 2 hours with her before I had to take her to the airport, it was well worth it. We haven't seen each other in over a year so it was a fun reunion. We mostly end up laughing at each other the entire time, and reminisce about the good ole days (since we are so old now ;) ) Great to see you again Lyndi!!

Our Day of Love

This Valentine's Day, we decided to stay home and just spend time with each other, and it ended up being the best Valentine's Day I have ever had. Jesse worked until 6pm, but as soon as he got home, he started on the delicious dinner that we had. He made us fillet mignon with salad and a baked potato. He also had a fancy shrimp cocktail set up as a appetizer :) YUM! Abby had some homemade mac and cheese with some chicken. We had a lovely candlelight dinner and Abby was on her best behavior (probably because she constantly had food in front of her!) I was in charge of dessert and I made some strawberry roses and a strawberry shortcake and ice cream dessert. The picture really doesn't look all that apetizing but it was really good.

After pigging out, we played with Abby and enjoyed each other's company. Abby did this weird but funny head shaking thing that we laughed about for a few mintues. Her hair was down so she would shake her head vigorously so that her hair would whip her in the face. I guess that feels good? We also watched a few episodes of "Friday Night Lights", a show Jesse and I have come to enjoy quite a bit, so we bought the season on DVD :) I wouldn't have traded this day for anything.

Abby loves Nemo and has learned the song that Mr. Ray sings when you first see him. In case you can't hear her, she tries to say "Let's name the zones, the zones, the zones, let's name the zones of the open sea! Mr. Ray!!"
